Dancing With The Stars: Kate Gosselin’s First Class As Dovolani Takes Coach, Allegedly

WHEN Kate Gosselin and partner Tony Dovolani take to the floor of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, he’s the one in charge,writes Rumor Rat.

But when the two of them fly back to her home turf in Pennsylvania, Kate takes the lead, sitting comfortably in the first class cabin, along with her bodyguard Steven Nield, while Tony has to fold up his dancer’s legs in the cramped quarters of a coach seat, a member of The Rat Pack has learned exclusively, and allegedly.

UPDATE: Mark Measures Mr. Dovolani’s agent writes:

I am Tony Dovolani’s agent. Your story is false and your source is bogus. Tony and Kate both travel first class.
Mark Measures

Rumor Rat reports that to rehearse with Kate, Tony has to make weekly trips to and from the Keystone State where ABC paid to build a dance studio in Kate’s basement.

And the inequities don’t stop there.

Renault Clio Verus Arclid Transport: Round 2

TIME for a follow up to that lorry driver training video in which a driver for Arclid Transport HGV finds a new way to increase a Renault Clio’s fuel efficiency without loss of power nor speed.

Rona Williams, who was behind the wheel of the Clio as it journeyed sideways along the A1(M) near Wetherby, West Yorkshire, says she thought she was going to die.

She pulled the handbrake and flashed her lights. And after around a minute the driver slows.

She lived. And another use for a nippy French hatchback was found…

Paul Daniels Is Turning Into Alan Patridge: Video

PAUL Daniels is turning into Alan Patridge. He used to be on the telly. Your writer once saw him on stage. He performed a trick where members of the studio audience arrived on stage and sat on chairs. A touch from Paul’s hand and each was rendered unable to stand. Magnets? Magic? Maybe. Most likely it was Paul whispering: “When I tap you on the shoulder do not stand up.”

pamela-anderson-advert1THAT advertisement with Pamela Anderson in a gold bikini rubbing against another woman has been ruled in bad taste. That should push up the number of hits per hour by several thousand per cent.

Crazy Domains the international domain registering firm blames feminist bloggers for stirring and will appeal the ban.

Banned? Ripper! No worries mate. Pamela’s ad is a reprise of the Go Candice Michelle versions. A couple of the Candice Superbowl series ads were also blocked.
